After my amazing experience at the Jose Villa workshop in Napa I was itching to play with a Contax 645 camera. After some thorough research, I found a great deal on a body and lens and decided to pull the trigger without ever shooting with one. Crazy, maybe, but this camera is amazing and I knew I would love it. And boy, was I right.

A few weeks ago I finally found some time to take a couple practice rolls with my Dad in our backyard and we had a field day running around during the gorgeous November sunset.┬áMy dad is the one who first got me into photography- he loaned me his Nikkromat 35 mm film camera in high school and has been my mentor and advisor for this hobby turned obsession throughout the years- which is why it means so much to share this passion with him. He has a film collection to die for, and his affinity for beautiful film cameras has been passed down to me. We spent the afternoon oogling over the gorgeous Contax 645 body and the beauty of the way it photographs and. I was nervous to get the film back, thinking they’d all turn out extremely over exposed or blurry, but I have to say that I’m so very pleased with how things turned out. And of course, the first thing I did was text my dad a photo of the contact sheets and we both oogled some more over how they turned out.
